[Parvathy Mills - Kollam (Quilon).Can we Open this Mill as a Nano textile Mill.]

Sri.Anantharamann,,M.Com,C &W A is a costing expert in textiles manufacturing. He joined the mill in the year 1967 as Secretary of Parvathi Mill employees co-operative society Ltd. at that period the mill was under Kerala Govt Managed mills.
Sri S.Anantharaman and others who worked in the accounts department of the organization that is N T C Ltd controlling Parvathi Mills,Quilon, taken over by governament of India is wondering if a Land that FED millions, the Land a gift of the King of Kerala will be handed over by interested men to some, who will Rape the Land.
Parvathy Mill was known as University of Trade Unions but for Mr.Anantharaman 
who did his M.Com while working in the mills, it was his Post Graduate 
university.He joined the mills after the Mill was taken over by the 1974 Ordinance 
moved by the Prime Minister of India, Smt.Indira Gandhi who brought under her 
govt control all them (non working) 111 textile mills which was in various stages 
of nonproductive due to lockout,strike,closures and mismanagement by 
throwing out lakhs of workers on the street for months and no sight of 
reopening or miss managed like MSK Mills and Parvathi Mills (which was under
the Sri.Karimuthu Tyagarajar who ran over 1,00,000 spindles under his 18 
textile mills spread over Tamil Nadu and Kerala. If he was alive, perhaps he could 
have managed all 111 textile Mills.
[As a mark of respect I insert a picture of Sri.Karimuthu Tyagaraja Chettiar's picture who is no more with us he employed in his 18 Mills 1000 of Textile Tecnocrats and so many that he employed even to train by Japanese Expert Dr.T.Hanada and many other workmen.]


CAN WE TURN PARVATHI MILL AS "A Nano Textile Mill & A Research Center" in Nano Textiles. A DRDO Project.


His Highness Visakham Thirunal Rama Varma, the then Maharaja of Travancore took the initiative to start a spinning mill in Quilon city (now known as Kollam) which was then business capital of Travancore along the Malabar Coast. He donated the land to start the AD Cotton Mill in 1884. The land was handed over to National Textile Corporation in 1974.( Can the Governamat of Kerala take back the Mill as they thought handing over their land to NTC or Governament of India is for good but what has happened now is almost never enen did any one dreamt will go to some one who will build a Bird Sanctuary or a Medican College or a Posh Mall with all sorts of luxury goods which will attract only rich of the rechist in Kollum (Quilon).

The NTC (not GOI) planned to privatize Parvathy Mills in 2005
The plant was added by the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction who had listed it for revival in 2002. The plan was dropped after protests by the Parvathy Mills Workers Union.


Along with many other mills in Mumbai, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad, Aurangabad, Akola, Nanded, Naini, Jaipur and Udaipur, Parvathy Mill was slated for redevelopment and modernisation in 2007 and 2012. To date these improvements have not taken place, and mill has been closed since 2008.As per the market rates in 2019, the total land value of Parvathy Mill would be more than ₹500 crore (US$70 million). The defunct mill's machinery has already become outdated and rusted beyond revival.

Representatives from Kollam along with organizations staged a dharna and march in February 2014 to try to obtain the Parvathy Mill land as the site for a government medical college. The mill is on 16.40 acres of prime city land valued at more than Rs.4 billion (US$64 million) as per the market value of 2014.[citation needed] As of December 2014, administrative delays in deciding on a site and obtaining land continue to delay the start of construction of the new college.
The company was founded in 1884 by British citizen A.D. Cotton and was the lifeline of Kollam before independence. This mill was taken for rent for running by a Tamil enterprise after Independence as the land was owned by the Kerala State Textile Corporation at that time. It was later was handed over to the NTC. The company has 120 employees, six of which are NTC staffers and 17 are casual workers. The plant has been shut down since 2008 pending modernization. However, there is demand to build a bird sanctuary connected to backwaters.

 What is Nano Textiles.

Nanotechnology fabrics are textiles manufactured to have special qualities like hydrophobicity and high durability. 
Nanotechnology fabrics are a relatively new and expanding field. They 
have applications in bio engineering, electrical engineering and computer science.
 How are nanoparticles used in clothing?

Garment makers have also been using silica nanoparticles on the surface of textiles to create liquid-repellent clothing. The nanoparticles create enough surface tension to keep liquids from soaking into the fabric. Instead, liquid spilt on this fabric forms into beads that can easily roll-off.

 Is Nano fabric breathable
Fabric Is Waterproof, Breathable, and Brought to You by Science. Almost every piece of adventure-ready clothing now has advanced tech woven into its fabric in an effort to be as waterproof and as breathable as possible. ... Futurelight will eventually be woven into nearly everything the a company makes.
 Is Nanotex fabric safe?

The short-chain varieties (with six or fewer carbon-fluorine bonds) used in newer formulations of Scotchgard and by Crypton, GreenShield, NanoSphere, Nanotex, and others are considered less bioaccumuative and less toxic, but they are extremely persistent in the environment, and there is growing evidence on this. 

Is Nano Mask washable?

Nano Fiber Face Mask - Reusable & Washable it is #1 in Korea  

Nano still untested so needs technical expertise  USA Laws.  

Now US laws require manufacturers to label clothing that uses either nano-silver or nano-titanium dioxide.

Watch for labels making claims like “anti-bacterial,” “odor-eliminating,” or “hygienic,” which may indicate the presence of nanosilver. Clothing labeled as offering sun protection may contain nano-titanium dioxide. Contact manufacturers and ask questions before purchasing. And let them know you want them to avoid nanoparticles in their products.

“Consumers are the ones driving the market and having power,”. “Asking questions of manufacturers—that’s where change will come in the market.”
